With a classy gastropub vibe, a seasonal menu and two gorgeous beer gardens, the Pig 'N' Whistle on Brunswick Street offers a charming bit o' British — a world apart from the high-octane Valley nightlife. Equidistant between Brisbane's entertainment hubs of Fortitude Valley and the Powerhouse, this friendly venue draws in pre-show crowds and New Farm locals alike.

The stylish exposed-brick and timber decor of the heritage-listed building creates a trendy, inviting ambience. Hanging lights drip over plank tables and greenery of the beer garden, and it's the perfect venue for regular live music.

Pig 'N' Whistle dishes up British classics as well as contemporary Australian meals and traditional Italian pizzas. It's accompanied by a prodigious list of Australian and New Zealand wines, as well as cocktails and local and imported beers.

Starters include mushroom arancini balls, snapper and prawn spring rolls and crispy chicken bites, while mains include a range of burgers including a delicious broaden falafel burger with avocado and tomato relish. From the grill, enjoy a 300-gram sirloin with chips and pepper sauce, while a range of pizzas offers up the classics as well as meat lovers with salami, prosciutto, cacciatore and olives.

This spot, and the several other Pig 'N' Whistle locations in Brisbane, are also well-known haunts for watching some live sport. And unlike most bars that play matches silently in the background, the volume is turned right up here. You won't miss a thing when watching a game at the Pig 'N' Whistle.
